Some Fun Non-Knitting Blogs

Timbo (of Timboland and the Swampy Award Alda won) and I have written back and forth a little this week. He was sort of wishing someone else would have awards like he did so he could check out new blogs.

I am not inclined to do awards, I’m not a thorough enough surfer to be fair, but I did send him a list of some non-knitting sites which have made me smile at least once or twice. I figure maybe you folks would enjoy a list, as well. For the most part, they are listed in the order in which I found them.

Of course, Alda’s Iceland Weather Report is first on the list. I read every post, though I don’t get over there every day. I don’t get anywhere every day!

Not a blog, but LibriVox is recording many thousands of books in the public domain, into audiobooks. They take volunteers to read/record the books, or you can just go and get something and listen. (Thanks to Brenda Dayne of the Cast-On Podcast for this one.):

Well, that should keep you entertained for a little while!!!

    Glad you’re getting better, just don’t wear yourself out. Thanks for the list, I hope I have time to check them out today. I love to explore the net, I think I might be addicted.

  2. Howlin' Hobbit Says:

    I *used to be* a “ukulele/jazz/smoky bar musician” until last year when the nanny-staters here in Washington voted to make the last remaining 20% of bars and restaurants non-smoking.

    I can certainly understand a non-smoker’s wish to go to a non-smoking bar. But they already had 80% of the places (just by choice of the bar owners… “choice” being the operative word here) and, quite frankly, inflicting their worldview on me in this fashion makes me *very* angry.

    Thanks much for the shout out!
